Globally, implementation of electronic medical records (EMRs) has accelerated. Australia is starting on this necessary but arduous path. Anecdotes suggest many nurses enquire “You Want Me to Use This EMR? Opinions on the use and usefulness of EMRs are not positive. This research proffers the use of a rich theoretical lens, taken from the information system’s domain, to understand the root concerns and create solutions; providing insight into nursing acceptance and adoption of the EMR.
